Decades welcomes 'The Joan Rivers Show'
The Joan Rivers Show, the comedian’s eponymous daytime talk show, will join the Decades program line up starting Monday, January 7, at 6pm ET.
The series will launch with her compelling interviews with Donald Trump, Marla Maples and Ivanna Trump. These fascinating sit-downs feature candid moments with America’s 45th President, as well as those close to him, well before he stepped into the White House. Looking back 3 decades, viewers will hear what Donald Trump had to say about the country, the economy, international trade and the media, which all would later become part of his campaign themes. Viewers will hear audience members encourage the mogul to run for office and will see his surprising answer. Other notable series guests will include Nancy Reagan, George Burns, Jerry Seinfeld, James Earl Jones, Betty White, and many others.
The Joan Rivers Show ran from 1989 to 1993 and was nominated for 20 Daytime Emmy Awards. In 1990, Joan Rivers earned the Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk Show Host, no doubt for her quick-wit and dynamic personality highlighted throughout the episodes.
The Best of the Ed Sullivan Show (weekdays 7am & 10pm ET on Decades) features Joan Rivers appearances from the Sixties. Joan began as a writer on the variety showcase before transitioning to stand-up. Her dynamic performances soon took her from behind-the-scenes to front-and-center, and she appeared twenty times for Ed Sullivan. Rivers was a familiar face on television appearing on The Tonight Show, Candid Camera, and The Hollywood Squares.
The Joan Rivers Show, airing on Decades Monday through Friday at 6pm ET, beginning Monday, January 7, 2019, features the hilarious host finding universal humor in the gossip, pop culture, and fads of the Nineties that still resonate today.
